In a move that could have significant ramifications for the upcoming League Two promotion race, Wrexham AFC co-owner Ryan Reynolds is plotting a major move. The Hollywood star has set his sights on securing the services of Saidou Khan in the upcoming transfer window. The Red Dragons are planning to raid their rivals for the midfielder, which could redefine Wrexham’s pursuit of promotion.

The Welsh club is ready to pay a six-figure fee to sign the 27-year-old midfielder, who plies his trade with Swindon Town. As Wrexham is aiming for another promotion this season, their latest pursuit could be a game-changing moment for the second half of the season.

As reported by Football Insider, Wrexham is set to bid to bolster their midfield artillery by acquiring Saidou Khan from Swindon Town. Khan has made 55 appearances for Swindon, helping them finish in 10th place in League Two last season. He has been a key player for the Robins this season, chipping in 3 assists in 18 appearances for the club. However, Wrexham is hoping to land Khan in the January transfer window for an estimated fee of $442,000.

Wrexham currently sits in the second position in the League Two standings. The Red Dragons are working hard to push for another promotion to League One this season. With just six months remaining on Khan’s contract with Swindon come January, the Welsh club believe that this could be their last chance to cash in on the midfielder.
